Catching the Daybreak

Year Six took the chance to catch the daybreak on Friday, getting into school at 7.00am, wrapped up in layers of warm clothes, clutching flasks of hot chocolate and boxes full of breakfast goodies including bacon baps and toasties. Grabbing sketchbooks, they set off for Marine Parade to watch the daybreak – listening to the gulls getting ready for their day, watching a fishing boat on its way out to harness the catch of the day and watching the activity of the docks across the river.

It was wonderful to hear the lapping of the sea, the squawk of the gulls and the chatter of children as we walked through the village, before capturing the atmosphere with photos and sketches. 

On the way back we were treated to hot freshly cooked croissants donated by Shaldon Bakery – not a crumb was wasted as we warmed our hands and mouths with these taste-bud-tantalising treats!

Well done to everybody who got up early to make marvellous memories – and of course, thanks to the bakery for their wonderful contribution to those memories. Delicious!
